    Nice vid. I am still amazed at how much ken thinks of his blaster bro's. He might do all sorts of work on all sorts of bikes, but at the end of the night its all about the blasters...

    The easiest way to tell a stock cylinder from a vito's cylinder (un ported of course) is to look at the intake bridge. Vito's left a TON of aluminum really low in the intake window. I spotted a Vito's 240 kit from a mile away when someone asked me what it was just by looking down the intake window.

    Of course that difference goes out the window once someone has gotten a hold to it to port it.
